      Just wanted to post about "Wes_R" who is a detailer in the GTA and I'm sure some of you are familar with his work. Well I experienced it first hand today!

      all I have to say is WOW I'm not exaggerating. My car looked better then it did when I picked it up brand new from the dealer!!! The paint looked really deep and the BMP really popped. My side mirrors were grey - I gave up on them and was eventually going to get them painted but after Wes buffed them I really couldn't believe they were the originals. I figured with 330,000KM he had his worked cut out I guess not

      I'll post a few panel shots - unfortunately it started to rain so I don't have any of the whole car.

      anyone who knows me I'm very particular with my car trust me when I say you can count on Wes to bring your cars back to life!

      here is his info: (647)999-8499 or wesrobles@gmail.com. give him a call you won't regret it!

      Thanks again Wes extremely happy!

      I just emailed him. The 9 year old TDI I just picked up last week desperately needs some detailing inside and out. Hopefully his rates are decent...

      Whatever the rate trust me it's money well spent
      Then it's just a matter of maintaining

      The quality of Wes's work is about as good as it gets, you'll be hard pressed to find a better guy around. If you want a nickel and dime job go somewhere else.

      Be patient he will get back to you it's the beginning of the summer and things are getting busy...

      I actually booked my appointment 3 months in advance cause I knew the beginning
      Of the summer would be busy. It took some planning on my part cause he keeps the car for 2 days.

      Thanks CanDubber for the great review! I really appreciate it!

      Bump this again for Wes - btw I will require final wash and wax before winter to keep that that safe over the winter.

      People keep asking if my car was repainted - again thanks for a job well done!

      Aren't you glad you took my advice (as well as others) in that other thread?! The funny thing is that a respray probably wouldn't have looked as good. The Audi guys love Wes, he does unquestionably great work.

      That was the first unmodified Supra I have seen in awhile! I really appreciate it!

      You might laugh at me but I use all purpose cleaner diluted 50/50 with water and a tooth brush to agitate the grime and then wipe off the residue with a cloth.

      Had the pleasure of meeting Wes and getting him to detail my dad's new Allroad this week. He washed, clayed, polished and then used Opti-Coat 2.0 on it. Looks better than new!
      Props to Wes R for real.

      First off Happy New Year!

      I started the year off Opti Coating this Juke Nismo. To be honest this is a love it or hate it car and I actually really like it! Not a full write up due to time constraints but I couldn't have it in my shop and not snap some pics!



      Measuring the paint


      Polishing


      Opti Coat Pro


      And the finished product




      Hope you enjoyed the pics and all the best in 2014!
